Death Hole, the Gate Horror (ゲートホラー, Gēto Horā), was a venus flytrap-headed Horror that emerged from a manhole cover manufactured by Kōji Kijima (黄島 宏二, Kijima Kōji), an artistic metal caster who left his wife Mayumi (真弓) to die under a manhole prior to the cover's creation.


Possessing the body of a woman, and converting her into the shaded woman in black (黒服の女, Kurofuku no Onna), Death Hole uses Kijima to mass produce more of the manhole covers to bring more of her kin into the world. However, while Death Hole meets her end against Garo, Kijima faces his own horrific end at the hands of his wife's specter.
